Ice Cream in a Baggie

(originally made 6/23/2006)

Made this with Jake yesterday, we had such fun with it. Instead of bags, I put the ingredients in a small coffee can, taped the lid on, then put it inside a larger coffee can. We layered the ice and rock salt, put the lid on, then taped that lid on. We rolled and shook the can for about 10 mins. :)

I subbed whipping cream for the half and half, it was what I had on hand :)

Ice Cream in a Baggie!

Looking for something new to entertain the kids during the dog days of summer? Here is a great recipe that can be made outdoors to minimize on the muss and fuss and will also let the kids help out in the process.

1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup half and half
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 sandwich size Ziploc bags
1 one gallon size Ziploc bag
2 cups ice
1 tablespoon coarse salt

1. Put one small Ziploc bag inside the other and add the milk, half and half, sugar, and vanilla extract to the inside bag.

2. Seal both bags securely, removing excess air.

3. Add ice and salt to larger bag and place smaller bag inside. Seal firmly.

4. Let the kids shake themselves silly -- shaking, tossing, and turning the bag. Ice cream will be soft and ready to eat in 5 to 10 minutes.

I should also say, I used WAY more than 1T salt, just kept layering ice and salt every few inches in the coffee can.
